"As one can imagine with a blend consisting of all wine cask aged whiskeys, it tastes very oaky with cashew nuts and vanilla. The influence of the various wines contribute strong fruity notes of apricot, mango and tart berries as well as floral Earl Grey tea notes. It's a bit overly complicated (in Yiddish "ongepotchket') and sweet for everyday drinking, but it has a pleasant, smooth finish and would work well as a dessert accompaniment."
